Girls Write Out

It's happening.

It all started with T-ball games, basketball leagues, and day trips to college and pro football games. Well, actually, it started when I married a sports nut and had three boys--what did I expect?

It started this year during college football. First it was a desire to sit and watch the Notre Dame games with my family. Then I had a little twinge of excitement early in the pro football season when I found out we had Colts tickets. Before I knew it, it happened to me. I'm sitting at the game jumping up and screaming, doing the wave, eating peanuts. I have become one of them.

So last night, when our beloved Colts (and Peyton Manning and Tony Dungy) went all the way and won the Super Bowl . . . well, let's just say it's a beautiful day and leave it at that. Hey, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

Oh my gosh, I was SO excited too! And I don't often watch sports but when I found out the Colts were in the play-offs, all that changed. Hey, they're OURS!!!

Somehow we managed to get through the sports thing when our kids were young. Our family was more into music--though hubby did watch some sports.

Now the grandkids are totally into sports. Every Saturday we head to the gym for two basketball games. In the summer, it's soccer.

And yes, last night we did watch the Super Bowl, and I was cheering with the best of them!!

I thought I heard Kevin screaming after the first kick off! Things were absolutely nuts in the TV room at my in-laws! We left shortly after halftime to get the boys home and off to bed (listening to the game on WOWO). Then we watched the end and I have to admit, I was sort of excited for the Colts. But then, tragedy. All week long ch 15 has been promoting "A BRAND NEW EPISODE OF 'CRIMINAL MINDS'" which is one of about four shows I watch. About eight seconds into the show, ch 15 cut to a live feed from an INDY TV station. You and Kevin (and guests) probably heard me scream at that point. They finally showed the episode an hour and a half later...grrr!

It was so exciting to see the Colts win! And yes, Allen, that was Kevin you heard screaming at the first kickoff.

Did you stay up for your show, then?

We knew last night the kids had a 2 hour school delay, so that made me feel a little better about letting them stay up late.

I did stay up. It was worth it too. Also, don't know if anyone else has heard about this, but there was an odd meteor shower shortly after halftime. Kristi and I saw one of the meteors hit ground. Orange and Green fire. Very X-files.

I could care less about football, though I did root for the Colts because of my beloved Indiana friends. That being said, I scrapbooked in the other room at a church party until Prince came on, and then I went back to Scrapbooking. : )

Even the commercials stunk, though I did like the connectile dysfunction one. LOL

I agree about the commercials, K. Not many laugh worthy ones, and a couple of them were downright embarrassing in a room full of mixed company.

Okay, someone from Chicago has to speak up here LOL. We had our moment to cheer. Like the first five moments of the game LOL. Truthfully, I hadn't followed the Bears that much this year, but when they won that play off game two weeks ago, it was time to pay attention. So I watched the game for the first half, then went back to my Rachel Hauck book "Lost in NashVegas." Cool book!
Knowing both coaches know the Lord and the Colt coach mentored the Bears coach was nice.
So my Indiana friends, enjoy your day of cheering. There's a lot of folks up I-65 in the frozen north licking their wounds.

I was surprised to find that I was actually interested in the game and understood it. I have no idea how. Osmosis, perhaps? Anyway, I LOVED the commercial where they smacked each other instead of fist-bumping. *giggle*

OK, I'm not so much into it that I stayed up all night crying - but another Chicago voice heard from -

It was fabulous! And my stoic Norwegian husband was all over the place. That was almost as much fun as watching the actual game.

At 9:54 PM, Blogger Sabrina L. Fox said...

I can relate, Denise. My husband is out of town and I watched it alone...can you believe that? I have a perfectly good book sitting on the desk to read with no one to bug me, but no, I stayed up and watched the game. happens to the best of 'em.

Allen, I too had been waiting for that episode of Criminal Minds. I wasn't too worried about "when" I'd watch it - with satellite t.v. I just pick the most convenient time. And then to my absolute HORROR the programming was wrong. Instead of it being Criminal Minds I was watching Law and Order....or something like that! I was so disappointed I stayed up until midnight hoping it would come on again! I still don't know what happened. I'll have to watch it on-line! :-)

I didn't watch a single game all year but when I heard the Colts were playing in the SuperBowl, I had to. Stole the couch from my dh and yelled louder than he did. When questioned, I had to explain. "You can take the girl out of Indiana, but you can't take the Hoosier out of the girl."
Abundant blessings,
Jenny Cary

Shuana, make sure you see it before Wed. It has a cliffhanger ending that is going to be wrapped up on Wed.

Will do! Does anyone watch CSI: Miami? There was a cliffhanger end last night, as well.
